Butser Ancient Farm - Saxon Village
Please enter a
This year, our enthusiastic Year 4 students embarked on an exciting and educational journey to Butser Ancient Farm in Hampshire. The trip offered a unique opportunity for the children to step back in time and experience life as an Anglo-Saxon.
Despite the unpredictable weather, the day was filled with hands-on activities that brought the past to life. The students had the chance to engage in various immersive experiences, such as carving Saxon letters into chalk, handling artefacts, crafting Saxon jewellery, and delving into the art of Saxon writing.
One highlight of the trip was witnessing the children's enthusiasm as they explored Saxon life. One student shared, "I loved the trip because we got to see how the Saxons lived over 1000 years ago, and we actually have a lot more in common with them than I thought."
